Hi there. It’s Mr.Wada back on duty! Previously, I’ve introduced Himeji Castle in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture. It would be nice visiting this place in any seasons but you know what, autumn leaves at Koko-en Garden (right beside the castle) look awesome as well. Let me share it this time.
You may wanna check this out as well for reference.
Koko-en is right next to the HImeji castle.

This place is open in the evening at this time of the year for watching autumn leaves. Check info.
In general, leaves turn red after mid-November. I like them mixed with red, yellow, and green. Nice contrast, isn’t it?
Leaves look even more beautiful with the lights up.
How is it? Mid-November was still a bit soon for autumn leaves but we enjoyed it a lot. The ticket is very affordable at 300 yen. Check it out while you are in Himeji.
See you around!
